It's quandry time for me. I want to upgrade from my Phillips hopper sv10. I like the concept od PJ's but the problems of PJ's are making me swing to plasma. 1) Inconvenience of set up 2) Progressive muck in the light engine and on the optics and the cost of cleaning 3) The limited lamp life and cost on renewal. (I accept that this is improving with economy settings available) That still only means realistically 3-6000 HRS Now a plasma screen seems to offer 1) Easy set up 2) No problem whatsover with cleaning. Why a friend can have a fag in the no-smoking area of my lounge! 3) Then theres the longevity with Plasma's life expectancy up to 20-30000 hrs. I realise of course that the pJ offers a much larger scale of image. But what about picture quality i.e. conrast, definition, fan noise even. I'd appreciate any opinions on the virtues and negatives of both mediums.
